Good cheap Mexican food

We have been going here for years as our go to Mexican restaurant. LOVE the chips and salsa, can never get enough. I always get the chicken taco salad, it is on the ala carte menu (it did not have chicken listed, but they still have it). Lots of white meat chicken (FYI, it is not what most... read more

We had dinner here while in town for a conference. It was conveniently located, but I wish we had gone a little out of our way and had a better experience. The food was bland, the drinks ( we each had a Wednesday night "half price" Margarita) weak, service was friendly. The wait was about 30 minutes, for no apparent... More

Service is quick and friendly. Food and drinks were prepared as ordered and priced fairly. Would recommend for lunch or dinner when in St. Charles.

Really cheap prices. Really fast service. Very friendly staff. Food was very tasty and fresh. This is going to be the go to place for a quick lunch and margaritas at night. Give it a try, you will be surprised.

It was a toss up between Buffalo Wild Wings and this place. Wings would have been better. Service was ok but food was very blah. I haven eaten a lot of Mexican but this was just not that good. Enchiladas with corn tortilla and green sauce was not a combination. I would suggest going elsewhere.

I am stunned to see that so many have given this place such high reviews. We were a party of four and we all found the meal less than good. For starters, the menu was rather limited, not a lot to pick from. I decided on chicken mole and expecting something yummy. I was turned off when I took my... More

I stumbled onto this restaurant by accident- it was one of the best Mexican meals I've ever had (!) There's nothing fancy to the space, and it's in a rather crowded strip mall. I was completely unprepared for how much I loved the food! The salsa that came with the chips at the table was PERFECT- flavorful with just enough... More

This isn't what I'd consider a Mexican restaurant. We order a variety of dishes and the only ones that tasted decent were the fajitas. The margaritas were weak and bland, the quesadillas were smothered in cheese and didn't taste good, the enchiladas were mushy. I wouldn't recommend this place until it fixes it's menu and raises the standard of food.... More
